CHARLOTTE, N.C. - It's not always the case that another football award comes with a round of golf.
But for Jeremy Chinn, a trip back to Mobile, Ala., home of the Reese's Senior Bowl was a welcome start to his short summer vacation before training camp kicks off in July.
A 2020 veteran of the annual Senior Bowl game, Chinn was honored as the organization's 2020 Defensive Rookie of the Year last week, earning him an invite to the organization's summer Hall of Fame ceremony and Celebrity Golf Tournament. Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert was the Offensive Rookie of the Year.
The golf tournament included this year's class of Senior Bowl Hall of Fame inductees (Patrick Surtain, Joe Staley, Fred Taylor, Reggie Wayne and Cam Jordan) as well as a number of celebrities.
